HAYWARD Living under a bridge below Interstate 880, Derek Rodrigues, 53, had to get up every morning and move by 4 o'clock so the commuters wouldn't see him.

catch up and watch each other's kids play.
The three of them share one room, neatly made up with an old TV, on top of which sits a thick white Bible from 1927 with gold lettering on the cover and spine. Fernorma said faith is what keeps the family going as she shows her family tree, written on the inside cover.
About 10 years ago, he had a stroke that weakened his right side, and he now receives Social Security with his wife, which adds up to $1,800 a month not much to live on. The past two weeks, the couple have been staying at the Green Shutter, a residential hotel in downtown Hayward that has been a well known stopover for many low income residents.
While Rodrigues is one of the hotel's shorter stay guests, others have made it their permanent home. The hotel's 80 units spread over the second floor of the Green Shutter building at the corner of B and Main streets, in the heart of downtown Hayward.
Everyone has a story at the Green Shutter
The Green Shutter Hotel evolved out of a blacksmith and wheelwright shop that had served Hayward in its early farming days since 1878. Some 40 years later, the Eggert brothers, native Hayward sons who had dental offices in Hayward, Oakland and San Francisco, built onto the initial building's brick walls and opened the Green Shutter Hotel in 1926 with 55 guest rooms and 13 stores below.
At the end of another hallway live Mike and Leaette Sullivan. They started off at the Green Shutter about a year ago in a room at the back of the building, and after a week moved into the room above the Bistro. That was typically noisy from the street traffic, and they waited for one of the building's four apartments to open up, where they have been living for about three months.
But the $250 the couple paid for their first week's stay and the $215 for the second week's stay has left them with Neverfull Lv Damier
Remnants of the building's blacksmith past can still be seen in one of its entrances that was once an alleyway between two buildings.
"For everybody, it's some kind of steppingstone. It's some kind of halfway," Leaette said.
All the family's toiletries are stacked around the room's sink and mirror. The son has been sleeping on a makeshift rollout mattress on the floor, and the family is Sunglasses Louis Vuitton 2018 hoping to move into the bigger apartment across the courtyard, which includes a shower.
Recently married, she and her husband plan to stay at the Green Shutter for awhile, use it to build good credit and eventually buy a house. For now, though, they brainstorm on how to decorate the apartment, improve the building's safety and help its residents.
The 21/2 bedroom apartment has a kitchen, two large windows that overlook B Street and a small yard where potted plants line a brick wall and a grill is set up.

"This place has blessed and helped us out a lot," she said.
Tucked away off this courtyard is the apartment of Jack Gentry, the hotel's longest resident. He first stayed at the hotel in 1964, when he was hired by the original builder as a manager.
"They treat me fine, like a king," Gentry says of his neighbors at the Green Shutter.
"I have good stories from the old days," winks the lifelong bachelor without expanding.
Andrew used to be a cook and butcher at Safeway, but a back injury put him out of work and on disability. Meanwhile, Fernorma, who worked as a caretaker, is looking after her husband. The Jacksons live on the "family side" of the hotel, where there are more parents and children.
Around the corner from Gentry live Andrew and Fernorma Jackson and their 15 year old son. They have been at the Green Shutter about five months, since they became homeless after their adult son was shot and killed in Stockton and the funeral costs became overwhelming. As is often the case, living with family members became too much, so they needed another option.
When Gentry moved in during the 1960s, the hotel was used mainly by business travelers, and there were three maids who changed the beds daily. The maids' living quarters were what is now Gentry's bedroom, living room and kitchen.
